It has never been assembled and all four puzzles are still in the original factory sealed poly bags. There is a small scuff on the box exterior beside the SKU number (see photo 6).
One lower corner has a very tiny split (see photo 8). The Notice (see photo 10) was reprinted from an on-line document. Research of this puzzle indicates it was manufactured first in Holland and then later in Italy (by Selegiochi). It was originally advertised in 1989 as the Worlds Longest Puzzle in the Bits N Pieces puzzle catalog.A quote from Bits N Pieces catalog. Escher solves the riddles of the universe in this inspired look at change. An awe-inspiring 153 long thats almost 13 feet!

Puzzles 3000 pieces will give even the best puzzlers plenty of challenging moments. The original inspiration for this jigsaw puzzle is Metamorphose II -- a mathematically inspired woodcut print by renowned Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher M.
Born : June 17, 1898 Died : March 27, 1972. The original Metamorphose II woodcut was created between November, 1939 and March, 1940. The original print measures 19.2 x 389.5 centimetres (7.6 in x 153.3 in) and was printed from 20 woodcut blocks on 3 combined sheets.The concept of this piece is to morph one image into a. Pattern and then slowly alter that pattern eventually to become a new image. The process begins left to right with the word metamorphose (the Dutch form of the word metamorphosis) in a black rectangle, followed by several smaller metamorphose rectangles forming a grid pattern.
This grid then becomes a black and white checkered pattern, which then becomes tessellations of reptiles, a honeycomb, insects, fish, birds and a pattern of three-dimensional blocks with red tops. These blocks then become the architecture of the Italian coastal town of.In this image, Atrani is linked by a bridge to a tower in the water, which is actually a rook piece from a chess set. There are other chess pieces in the water and the water becomes a chess board. We adore chaos because we love to produce order. Puzzle comes from a pet free/smoke free home. Questions are always welcome and additional photos can be provided.
